What Should We Do With Our Fantasy Quarterbacks This Week?Fantasy Leagues, News Sunday, September 26th, 2010
Each week FFSpin.com will analyze the matchups and provide our take on which QBs, RBs, and WRs you should start and which should be riding the pine based on difficult matchups, injuries, potential weather problems etc. If your quarterbacks or receivers are facing these defenses you may want to go in a different direction unless you have every week stud starters.
Top 5 Fantasy Defenses in 2009 (least passing pts allowed): NY Jets, Buffalo, Carolina, Denver, Baltimore. On the flip side if you have QB facing these porous secondaries its probably worth rolling the dice and putting them under center for your fantasy squad. Bottom 5 Fantasy Defenses in 2009 (least passing pts allowed): Jacksonville, NY Giants, Seattle, Tennessee, Detroit. So, to the GCobb.com community, good luck this week…
FANTASY FOOTBALL SPIN:
Upgrade: QB Tony Romo (@ Houston) – Despite the 0-2 start, Tony Romo has produced starter worthy stats in the first two weeks. In a week 2 loss to Chicago, Romo completed 34-of-51 passes for 374 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions (both on tipped balls). What I cannot say on our FFSpin site, but I can say here, is that I hope he flops (I am an Eagles fan after all) but it won’t happen. In week 3 he faces a Houston secondary that ranks last in the NFL for passing yards allowed through 2 weeks (411 yards passing per game). With Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, Jason Witten and Felix Jones at his disposal this should be a week that the Dallas offense as a breakout performance (provided the O-line can hold off Mario Williams).
Downgrade: QB Aaron Rodgers (@Chicago) – In two games against Chicago in 2009, A-rod – no to be mistaken with the other steroid dependent A-Rod, failed to top 200 yards in either game and completed only one touchdown pass. The Bears defense has been stout through 2 weeks with the addition of sack master Julius Peppers and return of Brian Urlacher. Rodgers is an every week starter but I’d temper my expectations in a division battle in the Windy City on Monday night football.
Sleeper: Sam Bradford (vs Washington) After throwing an alarming 55 passes in his first NFL start in week 1, Sam Bradford completed 13-of-24 passes for 171 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Rams’ Week 2 loss to the Raiders. He has been very impressive so far despite having quite possibly the worst WR corps in the NFL. In week 3 he faces a Washington defense that nearly yielded 500 yards to Matt Schaub in week 2. If you are in a 2 QB league, Bradford could be a viable starter as the Rams will likely be playing from behind this week and in most games this season.
